REL 480.001 Problems of Evil
Depending upon your point of view, much is going wrong in the world. But what counts as “evil” may depend upon your viewpoint. This course is therefore about problems of evil (in the plural). This seminar explores the current academic discourses on evil alongside several alternative approaches to it. Our discussions will turn from evil, as a traditional Western challenge to the existence of God, towards considering what it may mean for “things to go wrong” according to a variety of global viewpoints.
